A Lump Like A Vein Near The Thumb?
Doctor, I’m Edi, 63 years old. A few days ago, my thumb finger near the nail had a bulge like a vein, what was the cause. Thank you
Hello, Edi, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Bumps on the fingers can be caused by several things:
1. There is inflammation due to nail piercing from the inside
2. Callus, or calluses due to excessive friction and pressure on the part
3. Arthritis, or inflammation of the joints, can be due to aging (eg osteoarthritis), excess uric acid levels (gouty arthritis), or rheumatoid arthritis
4. Soft tissue tumor (soft tissue tumor)
To find out the exact cause, you can check with your doctor, especially if the lump is painful, red, gets bigger over time, interferes with activities, discharges fluid or pus, or you experience other symptoms such as unintentional weight loss, no appetite. , and fever.
The doctor will conduct in-depth interviews, physical examinations, and supporting examinations if needed, such as X-rays to biopsy (examination of tissue under a microscope to see whether the tissue is benign or malignant).
If the pain and redness, you can take paracetamol to relieve it. In addition, rest the part that has the lump. It is best not to squeeze or injure the lump without expert supervision to avoid exacerbation such as infection.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
Regards, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
